Dr Sania asks people to wait for SMS about relief amount

ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation Dr Sania Nishtar on Sunday said that more than 1.774 million families have benefited from Ehsaas Emergency Cash Relief Program so far.
Addressing a press conference Ehsaas Call Center in Islamabad on Sunday, she said that Rs22.46 billion have been disbursed as yet in this regard.
The special assistant said that the people who are eligible or not are informed through SMS. The eligible persons are further informed in another SMS in ten days time about the date and cash point of receiving payment.
Dr Nishtar said the people who are receiving any kind of salary for job should not apply for this facility as this is aimed at daily wagers only who have lost their livelihoods due to lockdown.
She went on to say that strict action is being taken against unscrupulous elements involved in deducting amounts from this cash.
“Transparency and merit is being ensured in processing the applications,” she said and advised people to visit cash points only after they are advised to do so.
